The Human Element Matters More Than Ever When Implementing Cybersecurity Awareness Training

cyberconIQ Named as Representative Vendor by Gartner1


YORK, PA –  September 29, 2021  |  cyberconIQ is honored to be named as a Representative Vendor in the Security Awareness Computer-Based Training sector, by Gartner. They concur that our integrated Human Cyber Risk Management Platform is an innovative and timely solution to a pressing problem. Human error and social engineering attacks continue to be the primary reasons behind data breaches affecting organizations. Security and risk management leaders must develop and continually evolve their security awareness training programs to mitigate human-born cyber risks.

The Covid-19 global pandemic continues to find ways to exploit online human error. Global economic instability, geopolitical tensions and uncertainty are all influencing cyber security risk exposures.

human element security awareness training“In the last 12 months, the “human element” has been involved in 85% of breaches, and in nearly half of them (36%) phishing was the primary mode of attack. Accordingly, a security awareness program must be considered a critical element in delivering a defensive-in-depth, or multilayered, enterprise security program.”, stated Gartner, Inc.

cyberconIQ’s Security Awareness Goals:

1. Reduce the probability of successful cyber-attacks
2. Reduce the total cost of successful cyber-attacks
3. Advance the risk & compliance culture within your organization


“At cyberconIQ, we measure an employee’s base instincts about how they behave online and improve their understanding of how that makes them vulnerable to online threats. We believe deeply that the solution lies in a greater understanding and self-awareness of these to improve enterprise security outcomes. By focusing on that last mile of your human firewall – no matter when or where you may be working from – we enhance an individuals’ ability to see threat contexts and it works! Consider an investment in your most important asset: your people.”, said Dr. James Norrie, cyberconIQ CEO & Founder.
